Super Baby (Ethan) & Josh
THANK YOU JESUS! ONE PRAYER ANSWERED AND MORE TO COME! I just got off the phone with Mom. Josh just called her and told me not to buy the plane ticket for Kansas because he's getting released tomorrow or Saturday!!!!!!! They're going to present his case tomorrow and that's when they'll make the final decision. His doctor said he might even be able to fly right away if he promises that he'll get up and walk during the flight! If not I guess they're just going to rent a vehicle and drive home. We don't have all the details yet, but we're so excited!
The fever went away yesterday! Thank goodness! He still has the swelling but it looks like they may give him medicine to treat it at home. He's been up and moving around- even climbed a flight of stairs and I guess Rosie's been allowed to bring him regular food! He's having a hard time with the breathing thing but I'm sure that will get better soon. (I don't know what it's called but it's like what Dad had do after his lungs collapsed! It's a plastic tube kind of thing with a ball in it and he has to take a deep breath into it (as deep as he can) to get the ball to go up to the top.) They also took out a lot of the tubes yesterday and this morning.
Please pray that all of this will work out perfectly for him to come home, that they will have a safe and comfortable trip, and that the swelling will go down quickly! He's so excited to get home and see the boys! Please continue to pray for the miracle we need to make him healthy again! I know I say this every time, but we can't thank you enough for your continued prayers and support! We wouldn't be able to get through this without you!
Hopefully I will have more wonderful news to post tonight or tomorrow! We're so just so excited today! We really needed this good news!
